Heading into today’s 10:00 am Turkey Day tilt at W. Leo Shields Memorial Field, Barnstable and Falmouth remained deadlocked at 59-59-8 in 126 previous meetings between the two teams (some years, Barnstable played Falmouth twice).
When the dust finally settled on what looked like an early barnburner, Barnstable rose victorious, having staged a 39-14 victory. Barnstable’s 39 points scored set a new all-time record for most points scored in a season with 376. The former mark was set in 2010 at 372. Kristian Lucashensky’s 4th quarter touchdown helped set the new single-season team mark.
Junior running back Hayden Murphy ran for 130 yards on the day and BHS QB Nick Peabody went 9-18 for 155 yards and two TDs and he also scored one from the one-yard line. Manny Perry, Dylan Morris and Tedaro France (2) also scored for the Red & White. BHS now awaits the time and place for Tuesday’s playoff game versus Lincoln-Sudbury.
